I have a mandrake 9.0 and I would like to install a newer (2.4.22)
kernel. If I start from the standard kernel, everything is fine,
but for this little problem: my sound card (on board) is recognized
(by the original kernel) via alsa, which is integrated in the mdk
kernel. With the new standard kernel, there is no alsa support,
but the sound card still works using the via82cxxx_audio.
Since, of course, the
alias sound-slot-0 snd-via82xxx
line of modules.conf doesn't work any longer, I must load the
module "manually", inserting th line
in my rc.local.
With this exception everything is fine.
Since I do not want to recompile the latest alsa, I thought I could
do the following: download the kernel-source of mdk9.2, install them
(they have alsa integrated by mdk) and recompiled. Naively I guessed
there should be no problem, since the package is just the
Yet it complains for wrong dependencies: it wants glibc-2.3.
I am surprised of this: why? Will I have (m)any problem forcing
installation and recompiling even if that dependence is not fullfilled?
